Four months later, Sam Lowes has returned to make a pole position. The British rider stopped the clock at the Red Bull Ring at 1: 28.659, giving him the fourth pole position of the season after he made the first three in a row in the opening three rounds. Lowes meets again.
To take pole Lowes has had to take advantage of a classification in which the two great dominators of the world championship, the two Ajo Motorsport drivers, have not finished having it clear. Remy Gardner has finished the session on the floor, while Raúl Fernández has only shone in the last second.
Bezzecchi has fallen at the best moment and loses almost all options
It is not a minor detail that Gardner has fallen. It is the first time in all sessions of the entire season that the world leader in the intermediate category ends up on the floor. It was in the last seconds of the session, when he squeezed to try to take pole from Lowes. Gardner will start fifth.
At times it seemed that in this Grand Prix the World Cup was going to be sentenced, because neither Raúl Fernández nor Marco Bezzecchi were having a great classification, but the Spanish has fixed it in the end. When he had only the seventeenth fastest time, he set a fast lap that put him second and less than a tenth behind pole.
So that, Fernández will leave three positions ahead of Garnder and tomorrow he will have to pull resistance to cut points on a circuit he does not like. Let us remember that the advantage that the Australian has in the general is 35 points, a limit difference for there to be a break.
The one who loses almost all his hope is Marco Bezzecchi. Last week's winner will have to start the race sixteenth after suffering a fall at the most inopportune moment, which has destroyed his motorcycle and has prevented him from returning to the track. Jug of cold water for Bezzecchi when he came in his prime.
Who will share the first row of the grid with Lowes and Fernández is Ai Ogura, which for many minutes was in pole position but was overtaken at the last minute. He was very fast in Styria, also in practice on Friday and he is desperately looking for his first podium in Moto2.
Will try to avoid it Augusto Fernández, who has been two in a row and comes out fifth. Also Arón Canet, from the sixth position, claims to be a very firm candidate for the battle for the drawer. His teammate, Albert Arenas, suffered a strange fall in Q1 that saw him drop out in that round.
